It is always a particularly sensual experience to see Sharon Eyal's works with her own company, L-E-V, on stage. Her choreographies dig deep into the memory of body and soul. With CHAPTER 3 - THE BRUTAL JOURNEY OF THE HEART, the last chapter of a trilogy about love comes to Cologne. The first part, OCD LOVE, was about how close love and obsession are to each other, while LOVE CHAPTER 2, began where love has already broken. Now, the third chapter is about repairing and reassembling. As in the other pieces, the drummer and musician Ori Lichtik developed the soundtrack with pulsating, partly live-generated techno beats, to which the dancers move with seemingly infinite flexibility to ever new expressive body images. The costumes, which lie on the bodies like filigree tattoos, were specially created by Dior's head designer Maria Grazia Chiuri.
